Customs Law Committee

About the Committee

This committee is concerned with the full range of laws and regulations administered by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) in connection with the importation and exportation of merchandise. These laws and regulations relate to such topics as: valuation and classification of merchandise, penalties and liquidated damages, free trade agreements, duty preference programs, duty drawback, foreign trade zones, bonded warehouses, temporary imports, quotas, intellectual property rights, country of origin determination, record-keeping requirements, and entry eligibility requirements. The committee also focuses on voluntary programs established by CBP, as well as enforcement initiatives and developments. In addition, the committee is involved with international harmonization efforts, and the comparative operations and regulations of Customs agencies outside of the United States.
